WA Secretary of State battling cancer

Mar 27, 2017 - 03:56 PM

Washington’s 15th Secretary of State, Kim Wyman, announced today that she has been diagnosed with colon cancer and will be undergoing treatment over the next several weeks.

The former Thurston County Auditor and Elections Director was re-elected for a second term in November 2016.

In an email message, Wyman wrote, “While this news is upsetting, my doctors have told me this type of cancer is not only treatable, but curable. I expect to make a full recovery after undergoing chemotherapy and radiation treatment.”

Adding that she remains committed to her role as an elected official, Wyman expects that she will be fully able to continue performing her official duties during her treatment and recover periods.
